Can you stand a little more of the red, white, and blue on my blog? AND, can you stand more mosaics on my blog? I'm thinking about renaming my blog "Mosaics with Laurie"! When I am preparing a blog post, I always think I'm not going to use mosaics, but as I've said before, my decor just looks better in snippets rather than showing the whole picture, so I go back to posting mosaics. For tablescape postings that probably do not contain mosaics, go to Between Naps on the Porch.

(I use Photoscape for mosaics)

EDITED TO ADD: Since I have had all of my dishes, etc. for so long, I don't remember specifics about where they were purchased. The two "quilt-looking" plates are china, and I do recall that the store where I purchased them was going out of business, and these were the only two they had left. They are made by Spode. The pattern is "Penny Lane", and on the back of one is "Patchwork 1", and the other "Patchwork 3". The dinner plates are just plastic plates that I've had for years. I don't think it shows in my photos, but on top of each patriotic dinner plate, I have a dark blue plastic salad plate. I think I got the lanterns at Hobby Lobby several years ago (of course they were on sale). The stemware is red and blue plastic that I think I bought at a flea market years ago. I purchased the placemats at Kohl's sale recently.

Thank you for joining me for a 4th of July picnic. Go to Between Naps on the Porch for Susan's link to all of the tablescapes. I wish each of you a wonderful holiday weekend. laurie
